Donald Trump and Melania Trump Meet Queen Elizabeth II for Tea

Queen Elizabeth II arriving at Royal Ascot Day 1 at Ascot Racecourse in June

Half-shaded by a tent, Queen Elizabeth II stood in a blue hat and coat in blazing sunshine waiting for the President and First Lady Melania Trump to arrive.

Britain´s Queen Elizabeth II (L) and US President Donald Trump (R) inspect the guard of honour formed of the Coldstream Guards during a welcome ceremony at Windsor Castle in Windsor, west of London, on July 13, 2018 on the second day of Trump´s United Kingdom visit. The trio watched as the Coldstream Guards marched past the dais in ideal formation and the military band played before they entered the Sovereign's Entrance of Windsor Castle for tea precisely 10 minutes after their arrival.

Afterwards, Mr Trump and the First Lady will make their way to Stansted Airport, where they will take Air Force One to Glasgow for the next part of their tour.

The royal communications office said it would not be releasing details of the 48-minute sit-down.

In the picture Friday from the Trumps' visit for tea, the Queen stands in the Grand Corridor between the couple holding her gloves and purse, without a smile and appearing unimpressed.

Trump replied: "I think I could have".


When asked about his comments on the PM, he outright denied criticizing her, dismissed the question as "fake news" and said the publication failed to include all the positive things he said about May.

According to recent surveys by non-partisan British polling organization YouGov, only 11 percent of Britons said they thought Mr. Trump was a "great" or "good president". The President wore a suit and tie and the first lady wore a pale pink suit with a skirt and black belt.

It turns out there are no specific rules when it comes to meeting Queen Elizabeth II. Trump wrote. "I couldn't help but notice how she moved people".

The Queen has given some of her biggest hints yet that she could soon step down from the role of monarch - as Prince Charles prepares to step in as King.

The POTUS recently told The Sun of meeting the royal: "She is a tremendous woman".

Ronald Reagan's visit to Windsor in 1982 was also not a state visit but, unlike Trump, he was hosted with a glittering banquet for 160 guests in the castle's St George's Hall.
